Please, why don't you include the millions that have suffered under these nations ruled by dictators and have immigrated to the U.S.
Because that wasn't part of the discussion, I suppose, and because it wouldn't undo any of the actions taken by the US. Not to mention, we'd have to address how the US has played major roles in creating the nightmare scenario those immigrants are fleeing.
So we only protected South Korea for our own interests to steal Korea's resources? Take a look at North Korea, then take a look at South Korea. Seems to me South is doing much better than their counterparts, the North.
Another example that proves my point. The US 'won' in Korea. The result? A nation split down the middle. The losing side gets its innocent people starved to death by sanctions, while the US has to spend and indefinite amount of time (55 years so far) and an incalculable amount of money propping the 'winning' side up with its military. Meanwhile, the calls for unification and, both national and family, and US troop withdrawal continue to grow from the North and South. The US continues to refuse, though, because the so-called 'security blanket' insures that the far East's vast economic power remains guided by the US.
Compare that to Vietnam, where the US 'lost.' You have a unified country sharing fully normalized relations with the US and a huge tourism industry largely supported by the US.
Now, it's obviously more complex than this, so feel free to bring up anything you feel is relevant.
Seriously, where do you get your information besides the internet and biased-media?
You just posted an internet link, and what, exactly do you find biased about anything I've posted?
You seem to get Muslims, and Islamic Extremists mixed up.
I think I made the distinction very clearly when I pointed out that Bin Laden's followers weren't inspired by the Koran, but by his condemnations of US policy. Please point out where you feel I've gotten confused.
